crabs are basically scavengers, they eat any dead meat :p
for baits, i have used selar, kembong, ang go li, and batu
u can try heading down to shop and save in the afternoon

they would be clearing their stocks of fish, as it isn't that fresh
3 pcs of kembong for 1 dollar :D wad a bargain

i bought 15pcs of kembong and 2 pcs of ang go li, total weighing 2kg+ for 7bucks
